If you're looking at a demanding day of butt-kicking, the nutrients in salmon can be your kung-fu power. The thiamine in the sunflower seeds will also enhance memory and cognitive function. The protein and healthy fats in fish can also help to keep your energy levels stable because they help maintain blood glucose levels already within a normal range.

  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
